Dataset Open Access

A collection of public transport network data sets for 25 cities

Rainer Kujala; Christoffer Weckström; Richard Darst

This dataset describes the public transport networks of 25 cities across the world in multiple easy-to-use data formats. These data formats include network edge lists, temporal network event lists, SQLite databases, GeoJSON files, and General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) compatible ZIP-files.

The original source data for creating these networks has been published by public transport agencies according to the GTFS data format. To produce the network data extracts for each city, the original data have been curated for errors, filtered spatially and temporally and augmented with walking distances between public transport stops using data from OpenStreetMap. 

Cities included in this data set version: Adelaide, Belfast, Berlin, Bordeaux, Brisbane, Canberra, Detroit, Dublin, Grenoble, Helsinki, Kuopio, Lisbon, Luxembourg, Melbourne, Nantes, Palermo, Paris, Prague, Rennes, Rome, Sydney, Toulouse, Turku, Venice, and Winnipeg.

Contrary to the version 1.0 of this data set, this version (1.1) does not include the cities of Antofagasta and Athens, for which non-commercial usage of the data is not allowed.

More detailed documentation of the data will be added once the accompanying data descriptor manuscript has been finalised.

The licensing terms are documented separately for each city.
